Coming soon: 3G iPhones?
Cool sleuthing by ImportGenius:
Searching for shipments to Apple, Inc. (AAPL), employees at the Scottsdale, Ariz., company reported on Friday that they’ve spotted a “major spike” since mid March in ocean containers marked with a mysterious new label: “electric computers”
“They have never before reported this product on their customs declarations,” says ImportGenius managing director Ryan Peterson, who notes that there has been no corresponding falloff during this period of shipments labeled “desktop computers” or any of the other labels Apple usually uses.
ImportGenius is a search engine that gathers “competitive intelligence” by monitoring U.S. Customs records of ocean containers entering American ports.
